EASTERN OREGON WEATHER.
Yesterday afternoon was the first
time since the 15tli iusL when the
wind did not blow a gale between
Hood Biver and Rooster Rock.
Should the same favorable conditions
exist to-day, we may expect to hoar
of some good progress by the force
of snow shovels. Most of them nave
been resting and, being able to get
enough food and warm places to
sleep, the work ought to go vigorous
ly. But the removal of the snow is
almost an appalling work. In the first
place it is packed nam by constant
winds. The'i, about half way through,
it is nearly solid ice, and the result
of oue day s thaw followed by o sud
den freeze. For a great part of the
distance the.flnow and ice have to be
loosened with picks and then shovel
ed out The first crowd, of shovelers
sent from this city are above Rooster
Rock tunnel and made nearly a mile
yesterday. The second crowd, are
about three miles this side and made
about the same distance. Yesterday
afternoon a third crowd of 110 started
from East Portland and are expected
to overtake the second crowd some
time this afternoon. They took
along a largo supply of provisions,
The first crowd, above the tunnel,
have enough provisions with them
to last until Monday night or Tues
day morning. Snow plows will not
be able to do very much between
Rooster Rock and Yiento, a distance
of thirty miles.
The snow plow from The Dalles
reached a point a short distance above
Hood Riverj and returned to The
Dallas last night Should the weather
be calm to-day, it is expected that
the plow will reach the imprisoned
passengers to-night or to-morrow.
The O. R. & N. officials have strong
hopes, provided there is no renewal
of the storm, to have, the track clear
by Tuesday night or Wednesday
H. B. Borthwick, the well-known
logger and mill man of the Upper
Cascades, "W. T., walked in from the
Cascade locks, arriving last night He
has resided along the middle Colum
bia for several years, and has means
of comparing the snowfall during this
storm with that of previous years.
About the heaviest snow since 1861
wa3 four years ago, when the Colum
bia river was closed for nearly three
weeks. The depth, then was not one-
third of the present depth, and none
of the old-timors can remember them
selves, or recall others telling of
any storm which in any way ap
proaches this for severity or for
amount of snowfall. Nor was the
snowfall less on the Washington ter
ritory side. When Mr. Borthwick
luf t his mill on Thursday, the 18th in
stant it was five feet deep on a level.
The wind blow straight down the river
for days and days without intermis
sion and there was no cross current
from the "Washington shore which so
often prevails in summer, particul ir
ly at Wind mountain. From the
amount of snow which he saw on the
track below the locks, and the hard
ness with which it is packed, to say
nothing of ice formations, Mr. Borth
wick is of the opinion that 1,000 men
cannot clear the road in a week.
The several falls along the line of
the road present at this time a strik
ingly handsome appearance. The
Horsetail fill, near Oneonta, is one
unbroken, graceful curve of ice un
til within about thirty feet of the
base, where the water, hitherto hid
den under the ice, bursts into spray
and falls upon a mound of solid crys
tal ice fully twenty feet high. Ore

WaiiiA. WaliiA, Dec 26. In the
ruins of the opera house, late last
evening, the body of Wm. Glasgow
was found. He had gone around be
fore the catastrophe to get wood for
the stove, when the upper story fell
out, crushing and burying him.' Two
hours later and the building would
have been crammed and many people
killed,-for the roof fell fiat, just where
the audience would have been, in the
body of the hall and the gallery.
This is to-day the most thankful com
munity in the world.
WaIiLA WrAiiLA, Dec. 25. Still no
mail from the west and the snow be
tween here and The Dalles is very
deep. Northern Pacific trains run on
time. Thero was a small mail to-day
from the east, but there has been
none from, Oregon or California for
twelve days. Two engines could hard

THE BLESSING OF UNRE&T.
It was in mid-ocean, on a winter's
passage across tho Atlantic, eastward.
A storm was raging. The great
steamer rolled and pitched by turns.
Her beams cracked, her mighty frame
quivered with the convulsive strng
gless of her engines and the sea. At
the dead of night her passengers
were in their stateroom berths, many
ot them restless and longing fo rarest
Suddenly thero was silence and rest,
unlookeu lor. ine engine stood stul.
The cracking and quivering liad
ceased. The great steamer no longer
pitched or rolled. And in an instant
those passengers whoso chiefestlong
ings had been for rest, started ub in
their berths more disturbed than by
au tne uisiuruing restlessness wnioii
had preceded this repose. Reay at
such a time, nnd in such a place 4 hs
this! Rest! when wind and waves
are at battle, and a ceasing to strug
gle seems a yielding of hope! TRest!
Is this the rest of death? Only in
the trough of the sea, and witHi the
engines and the rudder useless, can
there bo such rest as this? OhJjfor
the old unrest against whichTtfred
nature rebelled ! There was termor
and a new longing m that rest And
when, after a little season for the' re
pairs of the steamer 3 shattored?bow,
the old quiver came again to, the
mighty frame, tho engines rumbled
and plunged as before, tho be'ams
cracked with their accustomed s'train,
and the mammoth vessel pitched and
rolled and tossed in fho renewed
straggle with the opposing elements.
many a passenger who had stbpdor
lain with bated breath, in that period
of unwonted rest, thanked Grid for
tho restored unrest, with a newxsense
of its often unnoted blessednesf
It is not alone upon the sea,in a
winter's storm, at tho dead hoarof
mgnc, mat tnere is a uiesseuness in
unrest, even while the whole s5ul is
longing for rest. Wherever there is
need for a struggle, or a desirje for
progress, or a hope of difficult attain
ment, passive rest is the shadow of
death, and unrest is the symbol and
evidence of abounding life. Odly
through present unrest, can abiding
rest be attained to. Only through
tho experience of unrest, can abKLing
rest be found a blessing. fc.
In tho dying song of Mosesfctthev
Lord is represented as lovinglff6r
bidding passive rest to his csbe&a
son Israel; so shaking himout from
his place of satisfied repose, in order
to his restless activities in the needed
struggles of life and pregress: 'As
an eagle stirreth up her nest flutter
ing over her young, spreadeth abroad
her wings; so tho Lord alone did
lead him." So the Lord stirreth ud

In Favor of the Nicaraguan Treaty.
New Orleans, Dec. 20. Tho Fica-
yune. in a double-leaded leader.
speaking of American policy and tho
Nicaraguan treaty, says: "The coun
try is ripe for au entirely new depart
ure one worthy of our great nation
andone that will stamp itself upon
the whole history of North America.
We must adopt a policy of acquisi-
iiou anu rerruorriai aggrandizement
to the southward. It need not be ac
complished by armed invasion or in
augurated in blood. The Nicaraguan
treaty is the entering wedge. Let us
drive that home, aud by investing
$100,000,000 in a ship canal there se
cure the country. American enter
prise will soon annex" the whole of
Central America from that base lino.
Sectional discord is happily ceased,
and the south is primarily aud deeply
interested in turning thetendency of
enterprise aud the march of empire
southward and her statesmen, by at
once championing a bold and bril
liant policy in that' direcliori, will
open up a new era for the cntiroconn

any establishment in Astoria; as our expenses are lighter than those
of any other store in town.
"VVe adhere strictly to our ONE PRICE SYSTEM, all our goods
being marked in plain figures, and we will not ask you $10.00 for an
